Weldment with multiple sheet metal bodies

Every so often I have a need to make weldment parts comprised of several sheet metal bodies. It appears that SW only allows you to create and build off of a single Base Flange feature. I end up having to do one of the following:

1) Model the sheet metal bodies using regular extrude features, in which case I lose the ability to make flat patterns of the components
2) Model each sheet metal component in a separate part then bring them into the weldment using Insert Part, in which case I have no associativity.

Has anyone come up with a way to create a fully associative multi-body sheet metal weldment?
